Password Management

Privileged Identity Management

Servers, databases, network devices, applications and other devices on your network all have administrative accounts.  Often these are generic accounts (such as administrator, or root) that are shared by a number of different users.  Given these accounts have elevated privileges, the passwords should be changed on a regular basis.  The reality is, they are very rarely changed.  This may be due to a number of different reasons, including:

  • They are running critical services or processes
  • They are embedded within applications or code
  • No automated tooling is available
  • It is too time consuming to change manually

How can we managed the passwords?

CyberArk Privileged Identity Management Suite

CyberArk Privileged Identity Management suite provides a number of benefits:

  • Automated of password management (even those hard-coded or running critical services)
  • Update all admin passwords (due to exposure, employee leaving or policy / regulation enforcement)
  • Know which individual is using a privileged account at all times
  • Provide a (optional) 'toll gate' to enforce the need for approval, prior to obtaining access
  • Contributes to compliance standards such as Sarbanes Oxley (Sox) and PCI DSS, by proving who has accessed sensitive information
